Outstanding experience
I was accused of a domestic violence crime that I didn’t commit and felt was wrong. When everyone else seemed to be plotting against me, the team at the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo, LLP took my case and helped me. They took the lead and investigated the charges against me which were eventually dropped when evidence was brought forth that showed my innocence. I can’t thank you enough.

Great assistance
Once I received a few traffic tickets, I knew that my insurance rates would increase and I would be paying for these tickets for years. With the assistance of the team at the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo, LLP, I was able to avoid added points on my driving record and maintain lower insurance rates. The cost of hiring a legal team to help with a fair settlement certainly outweighed the cost of long term insurance increases. Thank you for your assistance.

Great customer service!
Caught driving while intoxicated after a night of partying I didn’t know what to do. I called the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo, LLP and asked for their assistance. With their help, I was able to receive a lighter sentencing than I probably deserved and I was able to continue with my life. Thankfully, I didn’t harm anyone that night and I certainly won’t make that error in judgment ever again. Thank you for your assistance and guidance.

Extremely Poor Communication
I had a very minor case & I'll start out by saying that I got the outcome I wanted. But I didn't appreciate that I sent him an email regarding my case and pending charges and he never bothered to acknowledge it. He also said that he was going to email me the information on the next appearance date and a referral for an employment attorney for one of my family members & he never did. I also didn't enjoy sitting in the court room on the 2nd appearance he was suppose to be there with me on and how he didn't show up or even contact me. I had to call the office twice before they could track him down---he was on another case that lasted longer than expected. But my case was scheduled for 9:30 in the morning, so I'm not sure why he would book something at 9 considering that odds are he would be there longer than 30 mins. My case was called by the judge twice before the replacement attorney---who also happens to be the owner of the practice---showed up. What if I didn't call? Would anyone have come or even communicate with me? My problem with the replacement attorney is that he explained that I would have points on my license but when I asked him how many, he couldn't give me a number other than saying "hardly any". I gave him 2 stars because all the charges were dropped. Otherwise, I'd only give one. It takes less than 2 minutes to answer an email and if he needed to overschedule then he should have at least let me know there was a chance he would be late and have a back up plan in place. The poor communication is simply unacceptable.

Took our money
Nathan was very nice when we first met him. However, once the retainer was paid there was terrible communication from the office. They only needed to up load legal documents since this case was a no loose type of case. There were major errors made in the paperwork and it was never fixed. They refused to answer/return calls or emails. We ended up calling the court and finding out that they never did anything with our case. The most work they did was write a lengthy email blaming covid for everything. Loosing our legal documents in your office has nothing to do with a virus. It took them 8 months to upload successfully a document. It was riddled with errors and missing vital information. After waiting weeks for them to fix the errors we decided to hire another attorney. This office does not care, even when we changed lawyers they never bothering calling or writing us to see if they could keep us on as there clients.

Worst ever
He never answers the calls or returns them. My case didn’t require much work . It was simple divorce. & accidentally when answers . I said are you busy I can come & sign . He tells me yes sure come in . I was there in 20 minutes. Which I told him before getting there. When I reached there he had a client I waited over 25 minutes. On a second occasion the same senario. Both times I leave work to see him since he closes at 5 n my work is over at 5:15. The second time also he made me wait so long I saw Nathan thru the glass window from the waiting room chit chatting with his secretary. I waited over & hour. All to sign 2 documents. It’s been almost 3 months he had communicated with me in the initial meeting the divorce would take 3 months. Don’t waste your time. The older secretary never knows what’s going on. She’s oblivious all the time!

Inefficient and disconnected
I hired Mr Schitssell in the early months of 2016 for an annulment case. The person handling my case quit and misplaced my case documents without leaving it the hands of anyone in the office. If I didn’t call to find out the status of my case I wouldn’t have known it was not being handled. The case ended in the hands of Nathan Decorpo who was unable to get the annulment because they couldn’t the signature from my “husband” so he convinced me that a divorce would be a quick solution as we wouldn’t need signature from the other party. The case has been dragged all this time without any results. I have called the office in numerous occasions but no call or response from anyone, Nathan Decorpo or Elliot Schitssell.
